    I dicovered that if you freeze low fat sugar free yoghurt it tastes just like ice cream without the calories, fat or sugar :gimi:
    I was so pleased with myself for discovering this.

    I've been doing this for years, there's a bit of a trick to it!

    If you don't like the big ice crystals that form in the yogurt, give the pot a good shake before it goes in and shake it every couple of hours afterwards (if possible!) it's like making ice-cream, which also needs stirring :)

    Depending on your freezer you might not want to leave them in all that long, I find about 4 to 6 hours is a good time, but YMMV. If they've been in there ages, I take them out a couple of hours before I want to eat 'em so they are not rock-solid.

    I love my improvised 'ice cream' !
